What we're doing

Downtown is the economic and cultural heart of Calgary. When our Downtown thrives, so does the rest of the city. To help support economic recovery, we’ve created a downtown strategy that includes four focus areas bringing together our civic and community partners in a coordinated and collaborative effort. 

It's vitally important for The City and the community to invest its support in planning and creating a livable, thriving and caring core. We are committed to making life better every day for citizens, customers, residents and businesses.
